of blew up at the edinburgh festival. things went missing from dressing rooms and digs and so on. whoa, whoa, whoa can you be more precise about these things? money from wallets and handbags a couple of mobiles. phil beaumont's laptop. did anybody report this? not as far as i know. i was rushing around the city reviewing ten shows a day, so i only know the gossip. tell me about the gossip. somebody challenged him about it and it turned into some sort of fight in the bar at the assembly rooms. a fight between... between richard and rezvani, our token iranian. how do you fit into the family? i started as a theater critic. but you'll turn your hand to a good murder story if it's in the family. professionally i have no choice. okay, so that's done you and richard scott. maybe you'd like to turn your journalistic eye on some of the others. like? emma golding. she seems to run the show. emma's brilliant. i think she's too big for oxford but don't tell denise gregson i said so. emma's her blue-eyed girl. this is professor gregson, who also plays landlady to a lot of the

to edinburgh's super- connected city bid. it will revolutionise home and business internet use in parts of my constituency such as kirkliston and ratho. unfortunately, my constituents are immensely frustrated at edinburgh council's year-long procurement process. what can the prime minister do to help speed up that process? >> it is vital that everyone has access to broadband and that increasingly we have that overwhelming access to superfast broadband. i suspect that edinburgh city council has seen some of the same problems that councils up and down the country have seen with getting state-aid clearance. we now have that clearance for broadband in england, but i am happy to look at the situation in edinburgh. that has been one of the problems that have been holding back this vital program. >> "you shouldn't have to fill in long forms from the revenue. you're working. you need help. we want to help you." i am sure the prime minister recognizes his words to families receiving child benefit. how many families could face a fine for not filling out a long tax form? >> the point about the child ben

to know. here we are, edinburgh castle peep show. absolutely splendid. in three languages the chateau of edinbourg in french, das schloss in german, and the castle of edinburgh. so it was designed for tourists. i'm going to ask you to help me do this because it's a lovely peep show. i've got it open. you hang on to the bottom. and if we go through it, we can see the whole streets of edinburgh and it's vibrant in its color. and i can see somebody in a kilt at the end there. is that right? yes. that'll be in the grass market in edinburgh. i was there the other day, and i have to say i don't recognize this building here on the left. i don't recognize that but the others are completely clear. that's the back of the castle. yes. and that's castle terrace here. and the old high street goes down from here to holyrood. the royal mile. so tell me where did you buy this wonderful thing? i got it in more of a junk shop than an antique shop in perth. and when i came across this, i couldn't resist it. well, i couldn't resist it either. apart from the box being rather tat

think the coalition government for allocating 10.7 million pounds to edinburgh -- this will revolutionize the internet using parts of my constituency. unfortunately my constituents, yearlong process, what can he do to speed up that process? >> it is important everyone has access to broadband and we have the overwhelming access, i suspect attenborough city council has seen some of the same problems up and down the country seeing st. aid clearance. we have that state aid clearance for broadband and i am happy to look at the situation in edinburgh but that is one of the problems holding back the program. >> you should and have to fill in longer forms from the revenue, you need help, we want to help you. so mr. speaker, the prime minister recognizes his words for child benefits. how many families could face a fine for not filling out a long tax form? >> the point about the benefit change is that 85% of families who receive child benefit will go on getting that benefit and the question we all have to ask, is it right for people earning 20,000 or 30,000 to go on givin

in new york, going on to the edinburgh festival, the warsaw theater festival. to me, those are great things when you can watch artists who think there is nowhere else that might be interested in you being a woman of color and telling your story and then getting excited about it. that is our biggest accomplishment. having artists have become better artists. what is. sheri coming back to brava, here you have this establish, amazing writer who has won a clue -- slew of awards. now she gets to director and work. even though she is this amazing, established writer, the truth is, she is being nurtured as a director and is being given some space to direct. >> the play is described as ceremony and -- where ceremony and theater me. in the indigenous tradition, when you turn 52, it is like the completion of an important era. the importance of the ceremony is to say, you are 52. whenever you have been caring for the first 52 years, it is time to let it go. really, here, they have given me carte blanche to do this. i think it is nice for me, in the sense of coming back 25 years later and seeing

things. what really happened in edinburgh? sorry? we've heard all sorts of half-baked accounts of your adventures at the festival. sex and drugs and rock and roll, i daresay. richard stealing from you all and getting thumped for his pains. what was it that really mattered? it wasn't about sex or drugs. and i don't know for sure why it was important but everybody went ape when phil beaumont's laptop disappeared. phil being the one who sits in the corner, watching everyone, writing it all down? five minutes, isobel. i'm sorry. may i go to venice now? of course. have a nice time. oh, robbie, um... did he tell you about monkford? eventually. did you know all the time? he consulted me about whether to tell you and when. that was thoughtful. so, you two still friends? interesting question. we're colleagues. workmates, they'd say in the northeast. we don't swap comics every week and he listens to weird music, but he's a damn good cop. he's just a bit young and, i suppose, enigmatic. he's private, you know? he says much the same about you. well, that's ridiculous. there's noth

right up to scotland on my own and visit all these marvelous museums-- kelvingrove, edinburgh bidborough collection. the glasgow boys really started about the 1880s and were influenced by bastien lepage in france and so you get this real great sense of painting outdoors square brushstrokes, similar to herbert letang. a number of british artists were also painting similar scenes. and the glasgow boys were certainly one of my real favorites--still are. especially crawhall, who is absolute genius. can you tell me a little bit more about the subjects? do they also relate to your family holidays or to the zoo? well, uncle lossie as the family called him would come and draw in my grandmother's sketchbook in her scrapbook and the family at various times took the pages away and had them framed, and that's what you see here. most of it records a trip to a zoo. whether it's a real zoo, or a zoo in joseph crawhall's imagination, we don't know, but these two little girls here-- if you can see them there-- are supposed to be my grandmother and her cousin. i think what

is acting on a continental scale. the question is, what is it? edinburgh, capital city of scotland. in the university labs geologist chris hayward examines lava from laki. he's looking for chemical clues that might identify laki's killer. one of the most interesting things we can see in these lavas are these very tiny crystals. and what these do is they record the chemistry of the magma at different times in its evolution from the time when it formed very deep under the ground until it was erupted so they're like little time capsules. narrator: as the crystals grew they entombed tiny pockets of laki's magma inside them, along with its chemistry. hayward: so here is one of the crystals this dark area. and you can see one of the little pockets of magma. and if i zoom in, this is the thickness of a sheet of paper, just to give you some idea of how small these things are. narrator: using a sophisticated electron microprobe, chris teases out their chemistry and finds something intriguing. hayward: we've discovered something very interesting. the material inside the cry
